daft dougal, 02 Mar 2010anthony.......how do I upgrade to 1.66 rom as i've checked and mine is 1.43....what are benefi... moreChange from 1.43 -1.66
Camera fixed and no need for hotfix file.
Glitch in Sense Calendar fixed no need for hotfix file.
3G SIM storage increased to 1000 contacts no need for hotfix
Sticking sent SMS and waiting for SMS to load before you can start writing a new one. Fixed (no need for hotfix file)
Use less RAM to do the same work so it is more stable. “STABLE”
More efficient battery use.
Newer radio drivers and I not talking about the FM radio.
And it you had a branded ROM then you get the missing software that your provider took out.
As almost everybody I us ethe mobile phone on the pocket. With this one you must be carefull because if you want to have it keep it power off you must be carefull because a simple touch on the "ON" it's enoughf to wake it
Hey guys and gals. I've got a response from HTC about HD2 and WM7. You can read it an take what you want from it. I urge others to do the same. Contact HTC about the update. The more the BETTER.... Here's the response:
Good Morning Dwayne,
Thank you for taking the time to contact HTC America Technical Support via E-Mail with your inquiry about the HTC Touch HD2 getting a Windows Mobile 7 update. My name is A.J. and I will be happy to assist you today.
I understand how important it is for you to have all of the available information about software for your device and I appreciate your concern over the HTC Touch HD2. At this time, HTC has not confirmed or denied the release of Windows Mobile 7 for the HD2. This is because the OS will not be released until December of 2010.
To my knowledge, only one person at Microsoft has said on the record that the HD2 will not receive an update to Windows Mobile 7 because it does not have the hardware buttons to support it. However, there have been other Microsoft employees who have said that the decision to update a device to Windows Mobile 7 will be at the OEMs discretion.
Since the update will not be released to HTC until December HTC has not announced the availability of a Windows Mobile 7 update for any existing phone or a new OS version for upcoming phones. I encourage you to wait until we have more information available on Windows Mobile 7. As we gather the information and make decisions on new OS updates as well as new products that will support Windows Mobile 7 we will host these announcements on www.htc.com. I apologize for any frustration you may have experienced due to the equivocations from Microsoft.
Dwayne, if you have any future questions about your device please feel free to visit www.htc.com and send us another e-mail. You may also enjoy community.htc.com, our customer-based community, which has a myriad of information on HTC devices. You can also follow HTC on Twitter at http://twitter.com/htc, you can become a fan on Facebook here http://www.facebook.com/htc, and you can watch videos of new HTC products on Youtube at www.youtube.com/htc. I would also like to invite you to participate in a customer satisfaction survey located at http://survey.htc.com/worldwide/. I hope you have a great day and thank you for choosing HTC!
Technical Support Representative,

I did go to HTC support and let them know my thoughts on the decision. I would to others to do the same. I'm sure your voice will get to the people at HTC who needs to hear it.....

I have been using HD2 for the last 2 weeks.
I am getting charged from the Network Provi... more Your Data problem is a common one with this phone and is easily solved with one of 2 free programs. “BsB Tweaks” or “HD2 Tweak”.
Use any one of the 2, to disable “data” (that will block your SIM from going online but you will still get calls) then turn on the Wi-Fi
Need to know…
1. You have to install .net 3.5 cf redistributed to get BsB tweaks to work.
2. When you lunch BsB tweaks, blocking data is in the menu lower right.
3. If you use HD2 tweak it is possible to block Data but still get MMS. BsB will block both at the same time.
4. HD2 tweak & BsB tweaks can be used together but don’t try to set the same things in both or one will contradict the other.
Links to software.. BsB HD .net in that order
At this point and time I'm done with WM and HTC. I've been using WM phones and PDA's for around 10 years now. I've had to buy into the next OS everytime a new OS came out. Well that time is over. I will look to other OS systems and hardware manufactuers for my next phone... Trueth be told I was looking at Andriod every since SE X10 was annouced. I liked the look of the UI. I've even posted that on the site before. But I new the OS was new. My plan has alway been to update in two years. By then I think the Andriod will be alot better then, and better Andriod phones and apps will be out....
So the decision made my HTC and MS made my decision to leave easier........
Enough said on the WM7 issue...... It's time to move on. I'm not devistated, just disappointed with the news from HTC and WM..... But I'm moving on......... Still will keep my HD2 for business for now..... At least til 2012???????? I don't buy phones to flip them.... I buy for my needs and the HD2 fits my needs now.......
#333, 02 Mar 2010If HTC HD2 supports microSDHC and will be possible upgrade OS to windows7 ?Read this : http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_hd2_doesnt_qualify_for_a_windows_phone_7_upgrade-news-1479.php
They say problem is no. of hardware keys. This is weird because 5 keys (also seen in Diamond2) actually improves WinMo 6.1/6.5/6.5.3 experience. WinMo's complete overhaul means they now are making something that not only can do without 2 extra keys but it also despises it. Weird ways of Microsoft.
And by the way microSD and microSDHC "share the same physical and electrical form factor" and devices supporting one can be made to read the other format by a firmware upgrade.

If you really what to get rid of some of the problems you are having with this phone.
1. Upgrade ROM to 1.66 (i make calls down to 1% and then the phone dies)
2. Install .net 3.5 cf redistributed and BsB tweaks 1.6 (will be able to decrease sensitivity in there if you like.)
1. 1.66 will fix your light sensor bug

Maemo is already looks promising ( http://blog.gsmarena.com/nokia-n900-hacked-into-remotely-controlling-your-nikon-dslr/ ).
Hopefully Nokia will fill the space now even bigger by the rewamp of WinMo
